HQ tailgate badges

Hi all.
Seeking some advice or ideas. I've some tailgate badges for my HQ Kingswood ute I'm restoring. They are in great condition and want to avoid ciutting the pins off if possible (and use double-sided tape). Is there a simple way to install these badges?

Any reply is appreciated.

Thanks, Dave.

HZ Air Conditioning

Hi All,
Looking for any advice in regard to installing AC in my 6 cylinder sedan? I live on Central Coast NSW, just north of Sydney.
First quote was for $6000!
Another quote by a guy at Kurri Kurri (Mark Ostermann), recommended to me by Greg at Ozwreckers (Toronto), $4500.00. This is to integrate into existing vents. Included A6 Delco compressor, and I think factory parts.
Anyone have any two bobs worth to throw in? Use original parts, or get new?
Under dash vs integrated? I want to keep everything as original as I can.
Many thanks,
Todd

Bathurst 1946

This is the NSW Gran Prix at Bathurst in 1946: https://www.youtube....
It was the first race there since WW2.
Frank Kleinig was there in his red Hudson Special (The 100mph Car) and Gelignight Jack Murray raced his Mackellar Special ( Bugatti Type 37A with a supercharged Ford sidevalve V8)
They were both timed at 110MPH over the quarter mile on Conrod. No seatbelts, no safety barriers, people standing on the side of Conrod straight.

What's Missing Here?

I have had a look on Holdenpedia, and noticed with the clock info that there is a plastic fitting on the side of the clocks that I assume the power feed and maybe ground connect to in order to feed current to the clock. This clock, out of a WB Caprice dash, doesn't seem to have one. It never worked in the car when I pulled it out. Can anyone enlighten me, and suggest where I may get it repaired? I am located in Melbourne. Cheers.
